In the wake of genuine concerns (and a lot of FUD) that has recently  
swirled around the question of VoIP security, Digium has decided to  
put together a free webinar with participants from the FBI, the VoIP  
Security Alliance, and Digium training staff.  It will cover some  
general basics of the problem set as discussed by the FBI and VOIP-SA  
representatives, as well as specific methods and techniques you might  
be able to use to better-protect yourself if you're running Asterisk  
or Switchvox (Digium's commercial Asterisk PBX) platforms.  I'm  
certain anyone running any type of VoIP platform will be able to  
benefit from the session, even if the Asterisk-specific discussion and  
defense mechanisms do not exactly apply to your circumstances.

The participants of this list (voiceops) are possibly not in the exact  
demographic of the user community that we're trying to serve, as you  
are mostly senior engineering folk versus the mid-level or beginner  
administrators and managers we're hoping will attend.  However, it  
still may be interesting and is operationally relevant to many of you,  
and certainly can be passed along to others to whom it may be new  
information.  Feel free to pass this announcement around to other  
lists or distributions which you think would be appropriate.
